SWC building is cool, the settlement is planned for March 2009...

I am worried about the rest of Civic Place...We'll see what happens after an appeal in the Supreme Court...

Hope they will overrule the stupid decision by Land & Environment Court to prevent the Parra Council from compulsory acquiring the site from the landowners (Michael Winston-Smith and Ray Fazzolari). Mr Winston-Smith's grandfather came to Parramatta from Ireland in 1920s and bought the site on the corner of Church & Darcy Sts. He currently owns the Hungry Jack's (the tackiest one in the country)...

His property would make way for the 45-storey Atria Tower as part of the Civic Place development.

We should know the final outcome soon.

btw, Parra Council have revealed plans to create a $5 billion riverside precinct bounded by Church, Phillip and Smith Sts! The Parramatta foreshore plans are currently on display at Parra City Council.......

I dont mind the quality of the shots, just as long as we can see some evidence of progress. The floorplates have taken off and it makes the Parramatta Council Tower appear very tiny.

I am also surprised to hear about the Land and Environment Court ruling against the council given that they normally would give the nod to anything being put before them.

Parramatta today with a camera, so I thought why not.
I must say it is quite a massive building for Parramatta.
If Im not mistaken, when it is finished it will be as high as the current position of the crane drivers cabin.

I have good news regarding Parramatta Council accquring the remaining four properties that they will need for the development. They won an appeal in the NSW Court of Appeal which has overturned a ruling by the Land and Environment Court which ruled that the council could not accquire them.

Owners of the properties have indicated that they will appeal - all the way to the High Court.

I kind of doubt that the current owners of these sites will come away financially ruined, in fact, I suspect that their future and that of all their issue will be handsomely assured, and to a greater degree than continuing to run their small businesses.

^well the first tower is uc being 76m high waterboard, then theres 3 more towers. two on southern side and one other side of civic place.
i suspect the northern bldg will only be 15-20storeys/60-80mm due to shadows ect.
but the two to the west of waterboard will be huge.
i reckon one of them will be 40storeys atleast or 120m!!
lets hope grocon build it and it has a public observatory at top.
really good posi being in civic place and a focal point!!

first masterplan.
the top row. from left to right-
waterboard, tower2, tower3 and bottom left is tower 4.


i reckon tower 3 is screaming out to be the tallest of the 4.

They are better off not appealling because they will simply lose their compensation and I am sure the council will offer a good deal to end the matter once and for all.

I was thinking today, why didnt they start on other buildings on the land that has already been accquired??? At least get something off the ground. They did that with Sydney Water HQ, but perhaps another one or two buildings.

the waterboard envelope was 60m and they ended up with 76m/. towers 2 and 3 were 90m envelopes, so i reckon both towers will be excess of 100m. cant wait

After reading serveral news stories on the net, it says that these 2 property developers themselfs have 28 days to make their decision if they want to take the matter to the high court.
It also says they have to pay for all the court costs.
I have also read reports of building heights of 30 stories to 44 stories.
Lets hope the issue is finally resolved in the next 28 days and get on with the buildings.
I don't like Hungry Jacks and I am bald.
